Really? The 2 league matches against us they didn't play any better (and certainly not "a lot better") and the only televised matches featuring London, I thought Widnes bombed their match and couldn't handle Sammut when he came on as sub, and the match at Toronto they went 32-0 down before Toronto stepped off the gas letting London back in. So I'd be interested to know which London games you've "seen" them play "a lot better".


They played better in the league game against us down there and if you don't think they played a lot better against Widnes you are kidding yourself. Now I know you don't like people having different opinions to yourself but unfortunatley that is what that is. London can play a lot better than they did last night, we would probably struggle to maybe go higher than a notch or two on that performance.

No they didn't. If I remember rightly, London were trailing 14-4 and Widnes bombed a couple of chances to make the game safe and then London got a couple of quick fire tries which made Widnes a crumbling wreck. London should never have won that game, Sammut coming on saved them and Widnes lost it rather than London winning it.

London played very well last night. Sammut and Battye in particular were excellent, and Spencer and Hindmarsh ran strongly. Pelissier was very lively and Dixon and Walker looked dangerous in broken play. They all bust a gut to beat us and spun the ball about, so I've no idea why you think London played badly, probably because you always like to have a moan.

Sorry, can you point out where I said London played badly last night? You seem to have little sense of context.

Are you a politician by any chance? Playing on words? If someone suggests that someone has played "a lot better" then I would have thought they meant the "initial" performance was rated as fairly poor. So now I assume you've changed your stance to London playing well last night but you've "seen" them play really really really well. Or just really really well? Stunning. But very confusing. I suppose it's my "little sense of context" :(

57. Is that ground good enough for Super League?

Shame what's happened to Leigh, Charlie. Thought it was a mistake when no subs were announced. Also notice that Fev and Barrow only named 3 subs. Disgraceful.

In the spirit of RL this is very sad to see this. Cannot be allowed to continue this boom and bust syndrome. Going to lose clubs forever if not.
